    Among the autobiographies of great military figures, Ulysses S. Grant’s is certainly one of the finest, and it is arguably the most notable literary achievement of any American president: a lucid, compelling, and brutally honest chronicle of triumph and failure. From his frontier boyhood, to his heroics in battle, to the grinding poverty from which the Civil War ironically rescued him, these memoirs are a mesmerizing, deeply moving account of a brilliant man told with great courage.

    What did you love best about Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant?

    The fact that this is Grant's personal account of events is compelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Details, of course!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sadness, at the grand scale of losses, on both sides.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely loved the accounts from a personal view. Even though Grant was not an "average" man, we must keep in mind that the accounts were written 20 years after the fact. I'm referring to accounts of personalities, etc. Anyone interested in Civil War history would enjoy this book.
